Ali Bashashati

Staff Scientist

I received my B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology (SUT), Iran in 2000, the M.Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran polytechnic), Iran in 2002, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering from University of British Columbia, Canada in 2007. Currently, I am a Staff Scientist and Director of Operation of Computational Biology Group at the Molecular Oncology Department of the British Columbia Cancer Agency Previous to this, I was an Eli-Lilly Canada research fellow and used to hold both the NSERC & MSFHR post-doctoral fellowships in the Molecular Oncology and Terry Fox Laboratory of the British Columbia Cancer Research Center in Vancouver, Canada.
